Strong partnership and cooperation for many years

Materials Technology Institute

The MTI (Materials Technology Institute) and KCI have been partners for many years. Since 2004, MTI has been a content supporter of KCI’s conferences and exhibitions in North America. Additionally, MTI members are regular speakers at KCI conferences worldwide.


In 2014, the partners joined forces to organise the first ‘Managing Aging Plants’ conference and exhibition in Europe. This event took place in Düsseldorf in March 2015.


Further joint events are planned for in Japan and in the USA.

Messe Düsseldorf

KCI and Messe Düsseldorf have formed a strong partnership. It began more than 20 years ago working together for the Wire & Tube show. The cooperation was strengthened after Messe Düsseldorf acquired the rights for the Valve World Expo. KCI is still responsible for all marketing and sales activities as well as the content of the conferences.


New joint projects have also been developed, Valve World USA, the Pump Summit and the Flow Control Exchange Brazil to name a few. In addition to this, a number of new projects have been identified and will be developed jointly in the next five years. KCI supports the diverse activities of Messe Düsseldorf through its broad global media portfolio.
